Nearly three-quarters of the undergraduate student body receive some form of financial aid, which in the academic year 2013–14 totaled more than $218 million from all sources—scholarships, athletic grants-in-aid, loans, campus work, and ROTC awards.
Eighty-nine percent of the graduate students received graduate and research assistantships, fellowships, scholarships, loans, and grants-in-aid totaling more than $169 million in 2013–14.
Notre Dame’s operating budget for fiscal year 2015–16 is just over $1.5 billion, and the market value of its endowment is approximately $9.8 billion. Two major sources of revenue accounting for a combined 59 percent of the total are student tuition and fees, and auxiliary enterprises (including residence halls, dining facilities, athletics, and the bookstore). A third source of revenue is generated by the University’s endowment pool.
The University has had a successful development program since it established a formal fundraising office in 1947.
In 2014-15, the development office raised nearly $390 million in cash gifts to the University. Of this total, Notre Dame’s alumni contributed more than $246 million to their alma mater; their level of participation is among the best in American higher education. Other important sources of gift income include foundations, corporations, and non- alumni parents and friends. For information on support programs, contact University Relations.
